"God looks at the heart and man looks on the outside. What I do and what we all need to do is find out what is inside people’s hearts." - Brian Head Welch
Hello my little rock stars!
This article addresses reaching the lost through unconditional love. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. It is both challenging and inspiring.
Korn guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch recently shared a touching photo showing him posing with a few fans who asked him to pray for transgender people.
“Got to speak and pray with these precious ones in Northern California – at least 2 of them felt a touch from Jesus. A sincere request from my friend on my right: “Brian, do you love transgenders? Then, please pray for us transgender people. We need prayer bad.” And I will.” Welch said online.Apparently, Welch was inundated with negative feedback from “Christians” who lashed out against him for embracing the group. Head wasn’t taking any of their shit, and shared an extremely powerful statement about how some “Christians” are making it hard for him to bring his fans closer to Jesus. Regardless of whether or not you are a believer, Welch is an extremely stand-up dude and handled this criticism with total class.
Read the Korn guitarist’s powerful statement below:
“Regarding my post about transgenders yesterday: Most comments were amazing thanks.
To the few people that were running their mouth about Sodom and Gomorrah and the sin of homosexuality, please open your hearts and read this carefully: God looks at the heart and man looks on the outside. What I do and what we all need to do is find out what is inside people’s hearts.
One of the people in the photo yesterday shared their pain and horrible abuse that happened to them that went on for years I think. Another had “Christians” attack them and throw them away like trash in the past. These people and dozens of others on my tour this summer are getting some level of inner-healing. They are experiencing non-judgmental Jesus lovers who are planting seeds and speaking life into them. Some of them are having instant change, but for most of them, it’s going to take some time. Many tears are being shed and their hearts are softening. Each heartless post from you judgemental ones are only helping to harden their hearts to Jesus once again.
The gospel of Christ isn’t like fast food. Not everyone has an overnight dramatic conversion like mine. Often times the relationship with God takes hold many years or even a decade or more later.
When you religious people try to force instant repentance and point out people’s flaws, you are dismantling what God is trying to do inside of hearts.
If I can convince even one hardhearted Christian to stop posting about instant repentance and hell fire while me and my friends are trying to love people to Jesus over time, then I guess this post was worth it.
It’s a tiring job trying to persuade my people to fall in love with the Son of God, Jesus, while other “Christians” are chasing them away with their posts at the same time.
I’m begging you, please stop.”
